10,000 QUARTER TURNS PER YEAR SECURE FOOD PROCESSING MACHINERY
Appearance and preference are crucial factors in the food industry. However, in order to produce the right product, state-of-the-art machinery and a sterile working environment are critical. And there is no reason why hygiene and modern design cannot go hand in hand, as EMKA and the renowned food machinery manufacturer Seydelmann from Aalen, Germany recently have proven. From now on, EMKA will equip eight types of Seydelmann machines with several thousand hygiene quarter turns.
Efficient “Cleaning in place”
After testing the market in great detail, it turned out: To find someone to fulfil the many requirements mentioned was an easy decision for Seydelmann because EMKA and its newly developed hygiene quarter turns met all the specifications. The hygiene quarter turn proved to be the optimal solution in the area of price/performance, as the lock can be integrated into existing machines with little effort. EMKA has developed its hygiene quarter turn, especially for sensitive environments in which there is a high demand for cleanliness and sterility. So the quarter turn complies with protection class IP 69K. It is dustproof even at low vacuum in the housing (<= 20mbar) and waterproof from four spray directions. The stainless steel components are robust and easy to clean, and can withstand the jet of a high-pressure cleaner, for example, to enable efficient “cleaning in place”.
